BASTROPCOUNTY, Texas -- With another round of storms about to hit Central Texas, Bastrop County residents are bracing for more flooding.

Although residents received an official statement from the Bastrop County Office of Emergency Management Monday that stated they were in the clear, another storm will likely bring the Colorado River's levels back up.

The BCOE told residents that the Colorado River crested at just over 15 feet and was receding.

The Smithville Fire Department issued warnings for HiddenShores, Pecan Shores and the Kirtely subdivision in Bastrop County Monday afternoon.

And they aren't the only ones bracing for rain. There are several other low-lying areas along the Colorado that are keeping their eyes on the sky Tuesday.

Over the weekend, heavy rain forced the early closure of ACL as many roadways were flooded. Nearly a dozen high water rescues were reported.

The same cool front will arrive in Houston overnight Tuesday into Wednesday, but flooding is not expected in southeast Texas.
